Independent Label Market

The next Independent Label Market will again partner with AIM, having done so for last December’s special event to help raise money for labels affected by the Sony DADC warehouse fire last August. As previously reported, and like the December event, the next one will be held at the Old Spitalfields Market in East London.

AIM CEO Alison Wenham told CMU: “AIM is thrilled to be supporting the next Independent Label Market at Spitalfields. As Record Store Day has shown, there is huge potential for fans, record shops and labels to meet up and celebrate great music. The next Independent Label Market has the potential to follow suit and become an annual fixture for music fans; a unique opportunity to purchase music directly from the people who made it”.

Amongst the labels which will have stalls on the market this time Ninja Tune, Wichita, Fire Records, Critical Heights, Lanark Records, Full Time Hobby and XL. Also, Domino exec Richard King will have a stall for his book on independent labels, ‘How Soon Is Now?’ (which you’ll be able to hear more about the previous Saturday when King does an In Conversation at The Great Escape).

The event will take place on 19 May. For more information, go to
